age of their fields." Finseth said. 

"Our crop conditions are so poor, I 
wanted to make sure that the

As a youngster, Pat McCullough 
used to find some quiet time when 
he" was herding cows. After getting 
up by 5 a.m. to do chores, he and his 
siblings were sent to pasture with 
the cows to keep the animals out of 
the neighbors' fields.

would lay down on a hill overlook-

(McCullough explained that the 
"hill" was pan of a gravel pit where 
the cows were pastured — the only 
rise of significance In the vicinity of 
the Ncwfoldcn area farm.) 

In January, McCullough became

. Whv older drivers? As we grow 
older, driving becomes a habit and 
manv skills are taken lor granted. 
The .problem is that physical 
changes, declining perceptual 
, skills, and local driving conditions 
can lead to serious accidents when 
not detected. The answer is the 
AARP 55 ALIVI-ZMalurc driving 

AARP 55 ALIVE is an eight- 
hour classroom refresher, course 
specifically designed to meet the 
needs of older drivers. The course 
addresses ihe physical changes that 
can affect your driving anility and 
behavior, and ways l» compensate 
for those changes. Also the curricu- " 
lum is -geared to remind you of 
.skills and technk|ues you once 
learned hut fail to use regularly, and 
update you on the rules of ihe road., 

"Many older drivers lend to for- 
get it's easy to develop unsafe dri- 
ving habits' over time because we 
become too familiar with some- 
thing we have done lor many 
• years." . says Rich Dohrmann. 
AARP 55 ALIVE Minnesota Slate 

Coordinator, •■'Rial is why we teach 
the rules of ihe rnud 'ami the ways 
to prevent accidents by identifying 
what should be done in adverse dri- 
ving conditions.'- : - ; 

In 1998 a .statewide network of 
574 volunteers in Minnesota who 
are 50 and older, reported 5U.I91 
graduates in 2.49ft classes. The pro- 
gram gives the volunteers an 
opportunity to help their peers leant 
how to handle adverse driving con- ' 
ditions and traffic hazards, as well 
as the affects of aging and medica- 
tions on driving. 55 ALlVli teaches 
participants about normal, age- 
related changes thai can interfere 
with vision, hearing- and physical 
strength that typically influence 
driving ability and attitudes. For 
. example, did you know lhat: 

• vision- is a critical factor that 
impacts driving ability? 

• side vision is a problem for 
'older drivers? 

* impaired hearing is a common 
problem for 20 percent of people 
55 "and older aitd 30 percent of 
Ihose over the age of 65V 

* another area of physical 
decline among older drivers is reac- 
tion lime, and lhat slower reaction 
time represents a significant prob- 
lem for older drivers'.' 

• mcdjcaiions taken bv older 
persons can interact with each other 
and with alcohol cause serious 
adverse reactions to occur? 
— These-problems are what lead-to- 
Ihe typical traffic violalions com-, 
milted by older drivers, including 
failure lo. yield the right-of-way. 
improper left turns, incorrect lane 
changes, passing, and entering and 
leaving expressways. Recognizing 
this, and that most older motorists 
began driving before formal driver 
education existed. 55 ALIVF. 
■ instructors teach ihe rules of the 
road. Participants also learn about 
the proper use and maintenance of 
their vehicles, aiurieani the safety 
aspects of the car including safety 
bells, airbags. ami-lock brakes, and 
child safely seats. 

"If cars suddenly seem to appear 
-from no where. -intersections boiher 
you because there scorns lo be so 
much going on or if gaps in traffic 
are harder lo judge, then it is lime 
to lake the 55- ALIVE program. 
You'll be glad you did.," says 

Completion of ihe 55 ALIVE 
classes can result in discounts from 
several automobile insurance com- 
panies throughout the country. In 
addition, legislation has been 

enacted in 34 stales and the District 
of 'Columbia which requires all 
automobile insurance companies 
conducting business in those slate's 
_to-providc. a premium ^discount lo . 
graduates of . stale-approved 
improvement courses. Minnesota 
docs offer legislated insurance pre- 
mium discounts.

' There's no w;iy of knowing jusi 

how utility lives June Scholin lias 

saved over lite years. 

Tor nuire ihan 50 years. June has 
been donating blood, and .on 
Thursday. July I. she was recog- 
nized by Untied Blood Services 
.. a nd . presen led . w i 1 1 1 a . p I ai] U e.. des i g •_ 
iialinj; tier as a lea gallon donor 
during a Wood drive at' Redeemer 
Lutheran Church. 

United Blood Services is based 
in l-'argo and provides blood lo 
more than 40' hospitals in 
^Minnesota. North Dakota and part 
-'■Tnr-Stmth-Datoui. Area patient 
needs require over 7(H) units per 
week or approximately 36,000 
units per year. A unit of blood con- 
tains 450 milliliters or approxi- 
mately one pint. 

June's gilt is not common. Iimur- 

area, only about five percent of the 
population donate blood, and 
respond to the never-ending need. 

Hie history of donating Wood 
goes back to, the early part of the 
century. While a few successful 
took place before 
I WX>. modem, large-scale transfu-. 
sions became practical after the dis- 
covery of blood types in the early 

During those earliest iransfti-' 
sions. however, blood was trans- 
ferred directly from the, donor to 
die recipient. In 1914. tlie storage 
of blood becunie possible with the 

discovery of -chemicals -dull pre- 
vented clols from forming. 

Today, preserving solutions per- 
mit blood to be stored for as long as 
■12 days although, according to 
United Blood Services representa- 
tives, mosi df the blood collected 
by its technicians is used within a 

.... While advances in science. have 
changed the way~hloo"d~is used and 
i lie methods used for collection, the 
majority of the Million's blood sup- 
ply is, still provided, by volunteers 
tike June. 

'Hie donation process is simple 
and takes less ihaii an hour. " 

Die first .part-of- the process. 
determines an individual's suitabili- 
ty as a donor. A drop of blood is 

.collected' and tested to make sure 
thai lite person is not anemic. A 
potential donor's blood pressure. 

-pulse-and temperature are also 
taken, and questions about health 
and behavior are asked to help 
determine whether the individual 
may have been exposed to HIV or 
other viruses. 

If it is-deleniiined that a volun- 
teer is able lo donate, blood is taken 

" from the arm of a donor using a 
new. sterile needle. Most people 
feel fine during and after a dona- 
tion,. and many say that they "feel 
belter" afterwards. 

After donating blood, donors are 
treated to refreshments and asked 
to remain in the building lor 15 

■ -- -There js minimal risk lo blood 
donors. A donor cannot gel AIDS or 
any other infectious disease, by 
donating Mood. All of die equip- 
ment is sterile and used only once. 
Donated blood goes to a United 
Blood Service laboratory, for nine 
hours of typing, tcsting-and ibe sep- 

aration or_w!lo_le_blood into blood 
components before it is labeled'and 
delivered to urea hospitals. 

Should any tests show that the 
donor may be a carrier of hepatitis, 
syphilis. HIV or other viruses, the 
Wood is not used. If required by 
local law. the results of the blood 

June Scholin (center) was presented) with a plaque and special 
card designating her as a 10-gallon blood donor by United Blood 
Services during its recent blood drive in Thief River Falls. June has 
donated blood on a regular basis since 1943. Marilyn Winter (left) 
is one of the community's volunteer coordinators for the blood 
drives, organizing the event and setting Up appointments. 

tests__are reported to the Jieallh 
deportment, and the donor's name 
is placed in a Deferred -Donor 
Directory. The donor is notified of 

■ the results and told that they must 
not give blood. Also, anyone who 
tests positive for HIV tests will be 
provided with counseling and refer- 
ral information. 

' Technology continues to 
advance, and" currently, United 

-Blood Serviccsis participating in a 
rcscarcji study that will evaluate a 
new type of testing, using Nucleic 
Acid Amplification Technology, lo 
detect viruses in the blood. 

One of the most common ques- 
tions asked by potential donors is 

' whether or not he or she has enough 
blood to spare. 

If a person weighs more" than 
110 pounds, they have enough 
blood to spare and share. The aver- 

' age adult person has about eight 

-pints of- blood.-The. fluid or plasma- 
is replaced within 24 hours, and red 
blood cells arc replaced in about 
five weeks. To ensure the safciyof. 
donors, guidelines allow donations 

• every 56 days.. 

The need for donated blood is 
not likely to end. Although, since 

..the 1960s, .researchers have inves- 
tigated a number of possible blood 
substitutes to be used in emergency 
situations, no substitute has been 

-discovered for blood. 

Because the need for blood is 
never - ending,' United Blood 
Services is on the road constantly 

holding blood drives in the commu- 
nities within its scrvicearcu. 

In addition to blood donors, 
other volunteer services arc uti- 
lized. Local volunteer coordinators 
organize the drive, publicizing the- 
event and making donor appoint- 
ments, and other volunteers register 
donors and' serve refreshments at 
the site on the day(s) of the drive. 

Why should we think about 
donating blood? The most obvious 
reason is that none of us can guar- : 
antce that we or a loved one will 
not need blood at some time during 
our lifetime. In fact, it is -estimated 
that up to 90 percent of the popula- 
tion will use blood before the age of 
72.. ' - 

The need for donated blood 
becomes more critical on-holiday 
weekends as an increase of people 
on our highways result in more-' 
accidents. Unfortunately, it is also a 
-time when many regular volunteers 
find themselves too busy to donate 

June Scholin was not one of . 
those who found herself too busy to 
donate blood lost week. In fact, 
since making her first blood dona- 
tion as a young woman attending . 
teacher's training in 1943, she has 
"donated blood on a regular basis 
throughout the years — at least 10 
gallons worth, and that adds up to 
giving the gift ofjife to countless 
others and setting* an example, for 
all of us. Thank you, June.

Notice: Persons HiihtrtlistibililY 

I used lo live on Rural Route 1. 
Now, thanks to the new 911 
addressing system, I live at 10345 
45th Street west, or something like 

atnuscd by her new address. "I've 
lived in this same swamp for 53 
years," she said, "and now they arc 
calling it Main Street West!" 

The- first of these crazy new 
addresses 1 ever saw was 187th St. 
SW in Buxton. ND. I was sure it 
was a joke. I thought some impish 
North Dakota.' person invented a big 
address to get more respect on the 

Rhone when ordering things from 
lew York. 
Then I got notice of my new 
address. No more rural Touie. The 
cowpalh past my place had become 
■ 125 th Street. 

The idea behind these complicat- 
ed addresses is that the ambulance 
will be able to find farmsteads more 
easily. To check that theory out, I 
called the 911 people to see where 
they would end up if I had an emer- 
gency and couldn't tell them where 
to go. 

Good thing I checked. They had 
me on the wrong road. They had me 
in the wrong county. If 1 actually 
had been choking on something, I 

palchcr where I actually lived. I 

fave the big fancy address. No help, 
gave the Jlrc number. 
GX304YM38. That did no good 

I said 

old Johnson place. 

"Oh. the old Johnson place!" The 

lady said. "You mean the while 

house just down from (he Erickson 

farm?" . 

Now tl was all clear. The dts- 

Eatcher found my farm in her plat 
ook. She corrected her computer. 
"When I finally' hav'e~a"htjarrailockr 
they will know whereto find mc. 

Perhaps these new addresses 
make sense to somebody, some- 
where. One can only hope that ihey 
make sense to the ambulance crews. 
Perhaps they will make things easy 
for them. . 

But I doubt it. It is more likely 
that some bureaucrat with more 
power than brains decided that 
everybody should live on a street 
and have a' house number just like 
him, whether it makes sense or not. 

I suppose we'll get used lo the 
new addresses, just like we gut used 
lo having lo dial the prefixes on the 
phone numbers when that improve- 
ment came in. But, no mailer how- 
meaningless the change, I will miss 
living on Rural Route I ,

Learning From Life 

It's easier to understand a new 
idea usin g real-life objects lhan_ 
"using pictures or wurtis. For exam- 
ple, the word "orange" stands for 
Utejfruit we eat as well as the color 
of certain things. But that idea may 
be hard for children to understand if 
we just tell them about it or show 
"Them pictures. 

If children touch, smell, peel and 
cat an orange and then look around 
for objects that' match. the color of 
the orange the idea will "come 
alive." Any time you can use the 
real object instead of a picture iris 
better and easier for y our child to

Citizens' forum wrestles ^ 
with rural economic crisis 




by Joseph Kurtz 

Extension Communications 
University of Minnesota 

■ Financial challenges facing 
today's farmers and financial barri- 
ers for young people who might 
want to farm or live in rural com- 
munities were key themes at 50 

, jocnl '_ citizens . .[orums_across 
Minnesota June 14. 

"If current prices and 'conditions 
don't change, it will get to the point 
in a couple of years that' those left 
won't be able to sell land or machin- 
ery." said Pennington county, extent, 
sion educator Howard Person of 
Thief-River Falls. "There won't be 
buyers." ' 

Person was facilitator at' the 
Crookslon forum which had 40 par- 
ticipants. Altogether, there were an 

.estimated 1,200 participants at 50 
• sites. The participants were also part 
of the audience for the statewide 
fonim, a live one-hour radio and 

.■_ television, broadcast _onjJhe_socjal 

—and— econorriic— crisis— in— rural- 
Minnesota that featured Minnesota 
Governor Jesse Vciitura. The broad- ' 
cast "was carried on .Minnesota 
Public Radio and KTCA television. 
Participants at Crookston includ- 
ed a dozen or more farmers, repre- 
sentatives of the Chamber of 
Commerce, some* Crookston city 
res iden ts and a membcrof the clcr- 
gy. "The overriding theme was, 
"Yes, we're in deep-trouble, 

~will get worse,'" said Person. 

L.kcy question wos,- 'Do yo u 

— wnnt-to-iuppoit-smnJI tnrmcrs c-rtor 
..!.agricuMrc_go ihe_way of_blg busi- 
ness?' Government actions such "as 
paying pork producersjS5 p er ho g or 
. reducing property taxes" $4 per acre 

were seen as crumbs." 

Person said government agricul- 
ture policyin Europe and Japan was 
a topic. "They have a national poli- 
cy that supports small farms and 
they subsidize those forms heavily," 
he said. "It's obvious to those farm- 
ers that the government wants them 
there, and wants food produced in 
their own countiy.Thurs not appar- 
ent here. If there s another way, peo- 
ple ore very open to suggestion. ' . 

A representative of an organiza- 
tion that supported the 1996 federal 
''Freedom, to .Form" bill said it was 
supposed to include an assurance of 
free and open markets, no trade- 
embargoes, and crop . insurance. 
"Those things haven t. happened," 
he added. 

"Most farmers sold, if we're 
going to do something, let's do it 
soon, or there won't be many left in 
a couple of years," Person said. 

At the. forum at Albert Lea, cur-

.Q: Does a family history of 
disability get considered as part 
or n disability application? In 
other words, if someone In my 
family now receives disability, 
will that harm my chances of get- 
ting disability? 

A: No. Each application is 
decided on its own merit. Having 
parents, siblings, or a spouse cither 
on or ulso .applying for disability 
wilt not be a factor of consideration 
in developing your own applica- 

Q: ir my application Tor bene- 
fits is denied, (s there an appeal 
process open far roc to use? 

A: Yes. The Social Security 
Administration has a multiple step 
appeals process built into the sys : 
tern for all of its programs. Since 
disability issues arc usually more 
subjective and open to discussion 
than other agency decisions, dis-- 
ability claims are more likely to be 
involved wilh the appeals process. 
A wide range of issues are open to 
appeal including if it is decided that 
you are not eligible or no longer 
eligible for benefits, or that the 
amount of-payments to you should 
be changed. In addition, parts of u 
decision can also be questioned. 
For example, as it relates to disabil- 
ity, you and. Social Security may 
agree that you are disabled but 
have differing opinions of when the 
disability began. Basically if u per- 
son disagrees with an agency deci- 

hculth docs not Improve. Will I be 
able to look into getting disability 
even though my husband Is work- 
ing full-lime? I have heard that 
his income can prevent me from 
getting benefits. 

._ A. You can definitely look into, 
oJncfTis, and your husband's earn- 
ings are not going to matter. When . 
talking to someone about Social. 
Security Disability there are two 
main topics lhat ore discussed. The 
firsi is ihc client's work record 
because persons need a certain 
omounl or work on their record, to 
be considered for disability benefits. 
For most adults this requirement is, 
lo have five years of work within, 
the ten years before health 'prqfc 
Icms made them unable to work." 

Of course, there arc more sjweif- 
ie' requirements concerning the 
amount of -earnings involved and - 
when the work 'took place, but part- ■ 
time work can definitely fulfill 
these. A person not meeting the 
work requirement cannot be eligible 
for disability.- through Social 
Security based on their own work 
record no matter how ill.thcy might 
be. " 

The second main topic is the-, 
client's health with the long term' 
nature and severity of ihc impair- " 
ment discussed. The income of a 
spouse is not a point of . discussion 
because income is not a factor of 

' It is important to bear in mind

United Nations Proving itself A Giobai Threat 

. Despite ilic willingness of America 
believe thill .What their country does is right. 
many have wondered arid continue 10 wonder 
how wo could have been involved in the boiiih- 
ing and virtual lake-over of a nation with which 
we were not m war. Mow were we and are we 
involved in Kosovo in an aeiion tliat imposes our 
country and others on a tiny nation and its inter- 
nal strife.' 

At least part of the answer is included in the 
following column hy F. R. Diiplantier of 
America's Future: ~. -* 

G AVKL, GUN & RUltSE -^ 

"The United Nations was created to provide 
a fonini for sovereign nations to meet and discuss, 
differences in hopes of finding peaceful solutions 
id those differences." observes Henry Lamb-ofr 
, Sovereignty International. 

"The purpose and function of. Ihe United 
Nations is changing, however." Lamb warns thai 
the UN "no longer sees itself as the facilitator for 
cooperative action by sovereign nations," bin 
rather "as the administrator of what is called 
•global governance.'" 

■Writing in the summer issue of e'eo-hftu: 
published by the Environmental Conservation 
Organization. Lamb notes that the UN has pub- 
lished "many documents which reveal both the . 
intent and the plan to achieve global governance. 
The plan is quite comprehensive." he observes, 
"and it is currently being implemented. The plan 
seeks to control environmental and social policy. 

intomic activity and military 
action." Lamb contends. 

"The United Nations no longer* sees its 
responsibilities as limited to serving its sovereign 
nation members." he charges.- "It has now 
assumed responsibiliiy for providing security to 
all the people* of the world, without regard for the 
sovereign authority of the nations in which those , 

people live. 

According to Lamb. "The published plan for 
global governance intends lo have all military 
power— including the ina'iufaciure.^ale and dis- 
tribution of munitions (including handguns) — 
under the auspices of lite United Nations. The 
plan calls for lite elimination of permanent mem- 
bers of ihe .Security Council and elimination of 
■all velo power. _ 

"The published plan fur -global governance." 

Lamb warns, "is being implemented, particularly 
in the United States, despite the fact that 
'Congress has noi ratified many of the key 
treaties, nor has it authorized the use of U.S. mil- 
itary forces by Ihe UN." 

Lamb emphasizes that the World Trade 
Organization is "only the first step toward con- 
trolling economic activity; the next step, consoli- 
dation of international currency flows, is well 
under way. The second step is necessary before^ 
the UN can impose ihe 'Tobin Tax' which." he ' 
explains, "will-give the UN an independent rev- 
enue source, making it truly independent of its 
member nations." _ ' : 

Lamb points out that .the International 

Criminal Court "will have the power-to enforce 
virtually all international law. The public was 
told that the ICC was a vehicle to prosecute only 
war criminals and international terrorists," he 
recalls, "but it is clear from the preparatory liter- 
ature that its creators fully intend to amend the 
charter"to broaden its jurisdiction to environmen- 
tal and .social law as well." 

According to Lamb, "Control of military 
activity. is the big prize for the UN. All the other 

control mechanisms," he emphasizes, "are only 
partial steps to ultimate UN controf. Control of 
■ military activity is 'the final step. And we nre 
moving in that direction very rapidly." 

Lamb argues that NATO intervention in 
Kosovo is "consistent .with the UN's objectivcof- 
ignoring national sovereignty" and he speculates 
that NATO could constitute the "standing army" 
needed to complete the UN plan for global gov- 
ernance. ■ 

How Do You Live Your Dash? 

The following poem was passed along to us 
from someone who probably pilfered it fronV the 
Internet. It is under a heading called "This" Week's 
Parishioner Participation" and is entitled: 

I read of a man who stood to speak 
At the funeral of a friend. " . 
He referred to the datcson her tombstone 
From the beginning to the end. 
He noted that first came her date of birth, 
And spokcthe latter dale with tears, - 
But he said what mattered most of all 
Was the dash between those years (19xx-19xx). 

For that dash represents all the time 
That she spent alive on earth.... 
And now only those who loved her 
Know what that little line was worth. 
For it matters not how much we own — 
The cars, the house, the cash; ' 

What matters is how we live and love 
And how we spend our dash.' 

So think about this long and hard; 
Are there things you'd like to change? 
You never know how much time is left 
That still can be rearranged. 
If we could just slow down enough 
To consider what's true and real. 
And always try to understand 
The way other people feel. ■ 

And be less quick to anger, 
. And show appreciation more . 

And love the people in our lives 
Like we've never loved before. 
If we treat each other with respect. 
And more often wear a smile.... 
Remembering that this special dash 
Might last only a little while. - 

So when your eulogy is. read, 

With life's actions to rehash.... 
I WouH'ybu be proud of the things they say 
' About how you spent your dash7

From Thk Uppkr Falls 

As It Was Celebrated In Thief River Falls. 

"The celebration of the Fourth of July in Thief River Falls this 
year was not what had been anticipated. The doy was fine, but owing 
lo the heavy rains of Monday evening the roads leading into the city 
were placed in poor condition and few farmers were in town to cele- 

"The celebration was commenced in the morning by a parade, 
led by the Ogahmnh band, and a very creditable showing was made. 
After the parade had traversed several of the streets, exercises were 
held on the grounds, back of R. Ocn's hardware store. The 
, Declaration of Independence was read by Wayne Richardson nnd the 
Rev. Harry Logan was orator of the doy. 

"In the afternoon the races, ball game, etc., were held. The fol- 
lowing were the winners of the different events'!

been participating in the game for 
about eight years. Dyer said, thai he 
could say he was most excited 
about (he game litis year because it 

was the closest to real trade. - 

. This year was different because 
the school has a MacLab in the

This game, he said provides stu-

them on the internet, leaches them

students that if they decide lo invesl 
in Ihe siock' market, that they 
should be involved in it tor the long 
term. Ten weeks is a short period of 
time. ' ■ ' „ 

He also advises ihem lo not buy 
the slock if ihey would not buy it 
themselves, bul ihe game is such 
that they may take greater risks 
than under normal or "real" cir- 
cumstances. The game: does allow 
sludents to buy on margin, and 
some groups have taken great risks 
and have been heavily leveraged, 
which. is. somclhin^ he would never 
advise a first lime investor to do. 

There have been some spectacu- 
lar results. Dyer said sludenis in his 
top group picked up on a lip from 
CNBC Market Watch and conduct- 
ed research on die tip through on ihe internet. After 
investigating the slock tip "BooKv

7.500 shares of ihe slock on 
Wednesday before Thanksgiving. 
On Friday, ihe stock closed at $42 
per share, up from $8 per share. 
The group's position in the game 
rocketed them to second in (he stale -- 
with a market value investment of 
$347,581. But Dyer pointed out. 
that ihe students had lo sell shares 
in oilier slocks to come up with the 
money for ihe 7.500 shares. They 
chose to sell Yahoo, which had 
climbed from SIM per share to

In the past year, the two slates 
have reviewed the advantages and 
disadvantages or year-round fish- 
ing. In order to provide greater 
recreational angling. for both stales, 
both sides of the river would be 
open to ■ year-round fishing. To 
address the concerns of over-har- 
vest, a spring conservation season is 
being considered that would run 
from March 1 to the first Saturday 
in May. 

During die proposed conserva- 
tion scason.there would be a reduc- 
tion in the daily creel limit of wall- 
eye or saugcr to- two fish, with no 
fish over 18 inches pos : 
session. After the first Saturday in 

- May,- the daily creel limit for wall- 
eye or saugcr would increase, lo five • 
per day, wilh no length restrictions. 
The same conservation season 
would apply _to northern pike, with _ 

J.a creel limit, of three fish_pcr. day,_ 
wilh no fish over 27 inches allowed. 
Rest of the .year, no. length limit.- 

- would apply, t but the creel limit 
would. at tnrcc' fish.-— ■ . — _ 

Channel catfish fishing would be 
allowed year-round with no change 
to current summer regulations on 
the Red River and its tributaries. 

Daily limit- for largemouth bass 
and smallm'outh bass or a combina- 
tion would be three fish for the Red 
River during the year-round season. 
The season for muskcllungc 
would be' year-round, wilh a daily 
"limitof one and a minimum lengllr 

~of 40inchcsr" . — ~~ 

Proposed regulations could be-in- 
place for the year 2000 fishing sea- -

period of four years. Part of the 

- ji evaluation process would be a 

review of information on angler

Sen. Rod Grams visited Thief 
River Falls and Roseau Monday, 
July 12, to listen to the concerns 
and problems facing farmers. 
Grams said their stories would help 
him in his efforts to find solutions 
to the agricultural crisis. 

Grams heard plenty to take back . 
to Washington, DC, at the morning 
meeting held at Northland 
Community and Technical College 
in Thief River Falls. 

There was plenty of support for, 
a disaster declaration, as requested' 
by Minnesota Governor Jcssc- 
Ventura. Grams said it would have 
been nice for his office to have 
re ceived a dvance notice of the 

jiiesrirolh Ventura's odi 

supports the declaration. 

.Farmers, implement dealers, - 
government officials and business- 
men from Pennington, Polk, 
Marshall and Red Lake counties 
encouraged Grams to support the 

He was told by many that the ' 
disaster goes beyond the farmers 
and is hitting main street. 

Thief River Falls Police Chief 
Ken Froschhciscr asked Grams to 
please remember city and county 
government. Social Services and 
other services- provided by-local- 
government are being strained to 
the HmiChcjaid. 

Grams said North- Dakota 

received the disaster declaration 
but what it received goes out of the 
norm of rules .and regulations. 
Nevertheless he supports the 
request and said it may open the 
| — gate — for— similar — action — for- 
Minnesota. • ■ -

Sen. Rod Grams listens to 
concerns of area farmers 

Warren Affeldt, Polk county 
commissioner and past presi- 
dent of the Minnesota Wheat 
Growers Association, was 
among those commenting dur- 
ing a meeting with U.S. Sen.

cither going deeper in debt or jjct- 
-ting out of farming. IJccuusc of the 
tax consequences of the Inter, she 
described the problem as "trading 
one noose for another." -. 

One area resident pointed out a 
- iwu-iier problem that many farm- 
ers, now in their SIK.and 60s face. 
Many have little in stwial security 
and have put everything they had 
into fanning. Their rci'ircmcnt 
plans hiiigcupon the value yf their 
land and whether they can rent or 
sell it. Many are deeply in debt and 
there is little or nothing to encour- 
age young fanners to get into the 

Grams told the audience which 
was estimated at over 75 during 
two separate meetings, that he had 
(lie same concerns and was sup- 
porting an agriculture bill that 
would reduce capital gains tax by a 
minimum of live percent and 
would get rid of the estate taxes. 

Another area resident noted that 
CRI* rates are artificially forcing 
rent prices higher, making it diffi- 
cult lor farmers to rent property to

program, allowing for shorter per> 
ods, such as three or five' years', 
.instead of 1 year periods. 

A county commissioner noted 
that Minnesota DNR and U.S. Fish 

have anything against a local resi- 
dent selling ilie land; but. if gov- 
ernment buys the land it should nay 
the full tax on the land just like 
everyone else. 

Grams agreed that seventeen 
cents on the dollar in lieu of.taxes is 
just no| enough. 

The commissioner further 
explained that when, government 
buys land and as, the population 
-lends -down ward— il-shttis-the-lits.- 
- burden on fewer nnd:fcwer people. 

Grams said he agrees that gov-' 
eminent owns too much land 

already. He said he's very against 
this, and thinks government should 
he reversing this trend. He agreed 
"that there is a need for national 
parks, et cetera, but "ij's getting out 
of hand and i<ki expensive." 

A number of individuals 
expressed concern about cross bor- 
der agreements and trade issues. 

Grams explained that some of 
theiproblems American farmers are 
facing are due to the subsidy pro- 
grams in other counties, but doesn't 
feel that's the answer for America. 
"More government is not what wc 
need." Cirams said. He said he 
would rather see farmers get a good 
price off the field. He said "it's 
hard to prop tin something when 
the market won I." 

Cecil Anderson, implement 
dealer in Thief River Falls for 28 
years, said (lie public thinks noth- 
ing of the minimum wage that pri- 
vate business is forced to pay. Why 
can't we guarantee fanners a mini- 
mum wage? he asked. 

Paul Nelson, chief executive 
officer for Mart/. Foods, thanked 
Sen. Grams ' for visiting 
Northwestern Minnesota. It's been 
a long litnc since a senator has vis- 
ited this area, he said. Nelson said

White the world seems to change 
at in ever increasingly rapid pace, 
some things never change. 
Dedication, determination and 
desire nave been and will always be 
the components of a winning learn. 

In 1973. a group.,of young 
' women'put Thief River Falls on the 
map as they marched their way to a 
second place finish in a national 
ccJiiywiitien ijitNew Orleans. 

■ Tlie..groii|)was the TRFinelles. a 
72-mcmbcr. all-girl drum and bugle 

Anyone living in Thief River 
[■alls prior to 1975 would most 
likely remember the TRFinelles 
and its predecessor groups, the 
"Bridgcman Half Pints ' and 
"Bridgcman Bridgettes." 

The Half Pints were organized in 
1949. Sponsored by Bridgcman 
..Creameries, the young drum and 
■ baton unit became a popular attrac- 
tion at parades and events through- 
out the area. Un i forms -featured _ 
plaid kilts and were made by the 
participants' mothers. 

Later, as they grew, the Half 
Pints became known as the 
Bridgcman Bridgettes, adding' 
more adolescent females to what" 
was still a drum and baton unit. 

In 1970, valve bugles, working

instructors were hired lt> arrange 
and teach new music, and the killed 
uniforms were replaced with gold 
Mouses,- bright green tunics' and 
plumed hats. Sponsors -included a 
number oflliiel f River Falls organi- 

More changes were experienced 
in 1973 as.lhe uniforms' Shi 
Fores'i *i 

more military look'. With addi- 
tional directors'* "helping with 
marching, maneuvering and musi- 
cal arrangement and selection, the 
young women gained recognition

The summer of 1973 included 
trips to the Twin Cities where the 
TRFinettes place third in a VFW 
contest and first in an American 
Legion competition. The excite-

Topping off that summer's events 
..was a trip to New Orleans and the 
opportunity to compeie nationally. 
Preparing the adolescent women 
for a national competition required 
hours and hours of practice, and

Dressed ^n green and black military-style uni- 
forms, the TRFinettes used bright flags, rifles, 
drums and bugles as they performed In numer- 
ous parades and events. This 1973 drum and 
bugle corps traveled to New Orleans In August 
of 1973 where they participated in a national 
competition. Polly Reed, one of the group's 
chaperones, documented the event and pub- 
lished it, first In 1973 and again in 1978. Copies of 

the publication can be purchased from Reed or 
at Peder Engelstad Pioneer Village. Proceeds 
from the sale of the booklet will be donated to

Of her involvement in the 
TRFinettes she says, "It wasa great

Ii must take years lor people to create those pretty gardens in lown. 
Alter one year of il. I realize 1 can' I do it all at one lime. I net I could spend

me know. I could use them, ..,.■. 

' I tried lo do everything right, the way the books said, and put little pop- 
sicle stick labels in where 1 planted, mil now ilicy seem to be lost m all the 
foliage, so I don't know what 1 am growing. Noih..fg looks like it did on 
the seed packets. Seed packets should show the size of things. Everything 
1 have seems to have much smaller flowers than the packets showed. The 
only thing I recognize are the Iwo poppies that have popped out this week- 
end (I was so excited loseelhcm that it made my heart gopittcr-pat). 

Gardening is hard work - walering and feeding and Irying to pull out . 
the obvious weeds. One has to keep at it every day or the flowers don t 
grow. 1 thought gardening would be relaxing. It isn't. Fighting the heat 
and mosquitoes and oilier bugs is enough lo lire anyone out, but especially 
me since I'm not loo fond of any of ihem: I don't care lo perspire, either, 
and this gardening business seems to involve plenty of all of ihose things. 
First of all. 1 go oui to do a Utile gardening, planning lo spend maybe 
15 minutes or so at il and then get on with the rest of my work inside the 
house. Three hours laier. I am still at il. I am perspiring mplaces 1 didn t 
know I could perspire and perspiration. (or old-fashioned "sweat ) is run- 
ning dowii my face and into my eyes. My face is bright red. except for 
around my mouth, where il is while and scary-looking, my hands and most 
of the rest of me are dirty with real dirt that you can see. and 1 have mos- 
quito bites all over. Last weekend I got hit on an ear and my forehead. .My 
ear is still red and large and my forehead is swollen right down lo my eye. 
Maybe it was a bee. ■ 

T. finally quit and headed for the shower; exhausted, dirty and swcaly. 
of course. Why can't 1 spend just a little time gardening and quit wheal get 
hot and tired and bitten up. ihen slart again after I have rested? Thai seems 
to be impossible because, even if I just spend a short time gardening. 1 need 

"a shower- W I ran back-arid forth in and oui or the shower aHduv; I would 
lum into a prune. It seems like once 1 gel gardening 1 have to keep it up 
until I'm done. ■, 

Another Ihing oboul gardening - il's mighty expensive. I don l dare 
add up how much I've spent on gardening things Ihis year. And I tned to 
keep expenses down by starting seeds indoors instead of buying plants. 
Needless to say, I didn't get very many seedlings, being a novice at this 
stuff, so 1 had to buy more seeds to put into the ground, "Then 1 had to buy 
plants to put in the gardens so they wouldn't totikllk'e nothing was planted 
there, and some polled plants to hang around so I'd be sure to have some 

. flowers To look at. . 

Of course I had lo get some decent potting soil and vcrmicuhte when 
1 was trying to planl my seeds indoors, and then top soil for Ihe beds, and 
fertilizer, and then I needed tools to work the soil, a hose to water the seeds, 
some garden gloves so I wouldn't get blisters, and a little mat for my knees. 
1 bought fencing to contain everything and then liiing it up because I decid- 
ed to let everything be unconfined and easier lo mow around once it start- 
ed to grow. Like I said. I don'i even want lo know how much 1 spent. 

But now that I actually have a few flowers growing. I can see how 
this gardening stuff might be addictive. Even if il is exhausting, it was quite

Tliief River Fulls) reminded farm- 
- ers lo apply for ihe agriculture 
relief payment if they nave not 
already done so. The Minnesota 
Department of Revenue begun 
mailing agriculture property tux 
rebate checks on July I. 

The agriculture tax rebate is one 
part of the agricultural relief pack- 
age passed by the 1999 Minnesota 
Legislature to help financially- 
strapped farrncis. The tax relief 
package included S70 million in 
direct payments to farmers, which 
came from the stale's budget sur- 

Rurul legislators also won a per- 
manent agricultural property, tux 
cut worth 553 million to the stale's 
farmers. While agricultural land 
owners will notice the lower tax 
rales. Inter in the year, the purpose 
ofStumpX's announcement recently 
was to make sure urea farmers are 
aware that this direct aid is avail- 
able to them now. 

"The Legislature passed the 
relief package in Apnl, and the 
Department of Revenue, began pro- 
cessing the rcbatc _ forms inlate 
May," Stumpf sutd. "The individual' 

checks are now lieingcut and 
out to fanners. This is direct relief 
for fanners who have been smug- 
gling lately. 1 know that the checks 
can't arrive soon enough." 

Payments of up to $5,600 per- 
farm are' authorized, at a rate of $4 
per acre. The payments are based 
on acres that a farmer has in pro-' 
duciion. whether the land is rented 
or owned. The state will be using 
infonnution collected by the feder- 
al Fann Service Agency to verity 
acres in production. 
J^ Livestock producers operating 
~oh less than 160 acres may instead 

choose lo receive a payment equal 
to their first-hair property taxes, up 
to the SS.fiOO cap. Hobby farmers 
operating less than 40 acres are not. 
eligible lor the rebate. 

"The rebate options are spelled 
out on the application forms." 
Stumpf noted. "Farmers must apply 
for the rebate by October 1st or the- 
end of ihe year, do [Hindi rig on the 
relief option they choose." 

"1 urge fanners to apply for iheir 
rebates now," said Stumpf. "The 
rebate checks will certainly help 
some fanners with cash flow prob- 
lems. Il may seem like a drop in the 

bucket for those who are really 
struggling, but this help fniin the 
stale will hcjusl what some fartn 

Jiuniltes need right now -- a shoi in 

■ the ami." 

Option A, the refund available 

.for livestock fanners that operate;- 
on 160 acres, requires an AG-2 
form. The application is due by 
December 3L 19.99, Option B. the 
per-acre paymemfor crop farmers, 
requires a letter from the Farm 
Services Agency, and is due by 
October I. 1999.

When Is Wilderness Not A Wilderness? When The Wind Blows! 

Wo "used 10 ""hear ij'iiittT":!' biriiruiiil the - 
Boundary Waters Canoe Area (BWCA) and its 
designation and treatment as a "wildcrmiss" area. 
There is a certain segment of the population 
which believes very strongly in the "wilderness" 
concept — that places should be set aside to allow 
nature to take its course without interference 
from humans. Mostly; these are areas quite a dis- 
tance from where this certain segment-ot'jhe pop- 
ulation lives. __ 


referred to as environmentalist, opposes the use 
of motorized devices as beiny intrusive in these 
designated "wilderness" areas but thinks it ist)K 
if they and their friends and families paddle and 
walk and and climb and fish and cook and pitch 
their tents with hundreds, even thousands, of 
other like-minded and abhi-bodied paddlers. 
walkers, climbers, fishersn.'boks and lent pitch- 

-ct s t Tb i s ~ k ~ "c» mmcnmg-with-naiurc." this is 
finding "solitude." this is. the "wilderness experi- 
ence,"- — ■■-.. .■■. . .■',.-.. 

These people like their "wilderness" raw. 

They want it pristine and unspoiled except 

when they want access to use it for themselves. 
Thei^will accept no compromise; a wilderness 
should test the basic instincts, abilities and phys- 
ical capabilities and perseverance of real men and 
women. No motor driven assistance here. This is 
(he last bastion far humans to face nature head 
on. mano en mano. come what may. 
Until the wind blows. 

Evetnhe'bcsi of tentsand/or sleeping" bags' 

offers-little falling tree or a 
lightning strike or/ a' high wind itself. - ■ j 

So last week when 'storms hit the "wilder- 
ness" of the BWCA and the windjlid bad tilings 
to trees and people tinder and irfbund them, the 
ban on motorized equipment became, moot. 
Injured environmentalist type people were spot- 

"ie"d"by^i^aTliralfdliirHfte-il-by-hOtlcoptcrTathci — 
than left to "rough it" and "experience nature" as 

~ victims as" well as visitors.' 

This is humanitarian, of course. We don't, 
nor should we, abandon people who need help. 
We do as much as we can, as quickly us we can, 
in any. practical way that we can to protect life 
and reiieve suffering and repair injuries. Even 
environmentalist .type people can understand and 
appreciate mat effort, especially those who lost 
their battle with nature and needed help. It just 
males good sense to react to an emergency and 
" sel'aside'the rules to accomplish what is practi- 

On portages where environmentalist typcu 
battled' to have motorized transport equipment 
banned, chainsaws were welcomed to clear the 
trails so people could get buck to civilization; 
again, a' practical breaking of the "wilderness" 
rules. Other than an early morning lawnmower. 
what makes u more irritating, intrusive noise than 
a chainsaw? 

Practicality, however, seems to end along 
..with the emergency. Millions of trees were said 
to have been toppled on thousands of acres in the 
BWCA. By any application of reason and com- 
mon sense, every economically feasible effort 
should be made to salvage what will otherwise be 
a net loss of lumber. Don't bet that common 
sense will be allowed to prevail. 

While standing and growing, the trees added 
to the scenery and serenity of the area. Now top- 
pled and twisted, positioned to rot and decay on 
the ground or turn to tinder if suspended, they 
offer nothing but danger. r 

Wc have already read one statement from an 
.official involved with the BWCA who indicated 
tlie trees would be left" where they fell. After all,- 
naturc did it so it must be OK. Those fallen trees 
will dry over time and provide th e fuel for future 
fires that will be impossible to control, further 
endangering the paddlers, walkers, climbers, 
'fishcrsrcooks-and-tcnrpttcherswho-inhabirthc- 7- 
area each summer.- 

-Howmucrrbctterit would be if timber com- 
panies in the area would be allowed to harvest 
what they could of the downed timber rather than 
letting it go to waste and become a future fire 

-hazard. How ironic it is that the onvironmcntalist- 
who cries over-'evcry newspaper that isn't recy- ■ 
cled will Tight to the death to keep loggers from- 
salvaging BWCA trees. 

Federal Tax Cut? Het's Pay Our Debts First 

Advocating a big tax cut maybe politically 
smart but doesn't seem to be too wise from, an 
economic standpoint. Republicans and Democrats,, 
have been sparring- lately-in_Washington about.. 
how big a cut is warranted. Republicans want to 
give up to'5800 billion in cuts while President 
Clinton leans toward a S250 billion figure. We 
disagree with both camps. 

While everyone agrees that taxes are high and 
it would be nice to have them reduced, the fact 
remains that our government has overspent its 
means and incurred debt which is extremely cost- 
ly to the American people. Prudent people pay 
their debts to eliminate interest costs before they 

start giving their money away. Why do people 
• lose sjght of that fact when they are elected to 
government office? ■ 

lLshould.alsQ_bc.ktfptJnjni.nd that the "sur-_ 

plus" which the Administration and Congress arc 
talking about is- speculative and long range. It is 
not at hand for immediate use. If and when it does ' 
actually materialize in a tangible way. it should be 
immediately applied to federal debt reduction in 
its entirely. And coupled with this resolve should 
not be a lax reduction but a freeze on increased 
' spending.' 

Spend no more, eliminate federal debt and the 
tax probleiiis will resolve themselves. 

Thanks For Listening, Senator Grams 

In response to a question asked by someone 
attending the meeting with Sen. Rod Grams in 
Thief River Falls Monday, wc were trying to 
recall the last time a real, live U.S. Senator from 
Minnesota was in Thief River Falls for anything 
but a campaign stop. Perhaps the visit was less 
than memorable, but wc couldn't come up with an 
answer. . . 

At any rate, Monday's visit by Sen.- Grams 
was appreciated. The meeting afforded the type of 

' interchange that is common when political office 
holders meet with ihcir constituents about major 

■ problems. The elected official listens politely and 
intently, affirms that the situation is understood, 
agrees that something has to be done, and assures 
the constituents that legislation is either being 

with thcproblem. Then he or she thanks the pub- 

lic for iLs valuable input and goes back to his or 
her office knowing full well that he or she can't 
do a whole heck of a lot about making the prob- 
lem go away. 

We are sure that, if he could. Sen. Grams 
would change some laws and regulations that arc 
burdensome and/or costly to farmers and those 
who want to get out of farming. And we arc sure 
he is' understanding of and sympathetic to the 
plight of farm families in this area who haven't 
liad a decent crop in five years and poor pri ces for 
what little they could harvest. But from a practi- 
cal standpoint, he probably doesn't have much 
more to offer than a sympathetic car. 

~ However lilUe'lic'can actually do, it was good 
of him to come to town and listen and to discuss

"The mill is a model one, and was constructed in u remarkably 
short time, a little over 60 days, after specifications dmwn by D. J. 
Murray of- Wausau, Wisconsin. The foundations arc as substantial us 
rock, and the mill is equipped with all of the latest improved machin- 
ery, thus insuring the- manufacture of lumber untie lowest possible 
pnee. It is an institution in which every citizen of Thief River Fulls 
should take a pardonable pride. Giving employment to nearly 300 
men, it the most prominent factor in the development of our; 
city, and everyone should speak well of it when occasion requires. 

The building of the mill has been under the direct supervision 
of George W. Luke, and to htm is due much credit. Earl M. Rogers, 
one of the brightest, young lumber manufacturers in the state, will 
have charge of the mill this season," - ' .

Once again, 4-Hers will shine at the^enningtoh Co. Fair 

by Kuthi CurLson 
Times Reporter 

If things urc a bii hectic in ihc 
. Helgoland household these days, il's 
only hecausc it's county 'fair time. 

Ifiejiteen-year-old Bryanna 
Helgeland and her 15-year-old sis- 
ter. Chelsey, are busy preparing for 
entry' day, and chaos in anticipation 
of the- Pcnningion County Fair-is-a 
long-standing family tradition. 

EJry.*inna and Chchcy an; mem- 
bers of the Smiley. 4-H Club, The 
girls' older sisters, Lesley and 
Jocelyn: were members of the club 
as was their dad. Bud. Their mom. 
Linda, grew up with 4-H. loo, as u 
member of the Silvenon club. 

The history^)!" 4-H clubs in 
America goes bdift To the late liSOO's 
when -educators -in several states 
developed programs to teach useful 
skills to farm children. 

In 1896, a naturalist at Cornell 
University began to publish infor- 
mational leaflets to be used by 
■eounlrv schools in forming nature - 
clubs. "In the early 1900's. com. 

canning and poultry clubs in sever- 
al southern and midwestern states 
.stressed learning by doing. 

It was a school superintendent in 
Ohio who began one of the first 
organizations similar to today.'s 
local 4-H clubs. Meetings were 
held regularly, and members 
worked on projects dealing with 
—corn,- flowers and soil testing 

The U.S. Department of 
Agriculture encouraged the forma- 
tion of such clubs in states across 
the country, and southern land- 
grant colleges joined the depart- 
ment in sponsonngihe clubs. 

Irt 1914, the Smith-Lever Act 
established the " Cooperative 
Extension Service. The act also 
granted federal funds to states" .to 
"organize boys' and girls' agricultur- 
. al clubs, and each state soon set lip'' 
a club department. Gradually, boys 
-and girls began joining.thc same 
clubs as they do today. 

In the early I920's, agricultural 
—clubs throughout the United Stales- 
adopted the 4-H Club name and 

emblem, a clover with four white 
Il's on its leaves, that had been used 
in Iowa since about 1910. 

Today, nations around the world 
have 4-H clubs or other similar 
organizations, and while some have 
not adopted all parts of the pro- 
gram, all join in helping young peo- 
ple develop uselul .skills, and 
.become, product! VC-cilizeiis. '. 

With funds contributed by feder- 
al, state and county governments, 
county extension- service agents 
organize 4-H programs across the 
country and. provide leader. training. 
The Department of Agriculture and 
slate universities provide educa- 
tional materials to club members 
and help organize slate and nation: 
al 4-H events. 

Ustablished in 1976. the 
National 4-H Council supports the 
organization's work on a nation- 
wide basis, The non-profit council 
is supported by the contributions of 
corporations, foundation and indi- 
viduals and helps to amingeucliv- 
ilies and events, operates public 
information services and develops 
educational materials including 
project handbooks and leaders' 

Although much about the 4-H 
program remains constant, there 
nave been changes throughout the 
years' 10 accommodate changing 
demographics. Today, only a small 
percentage of 4-H members actual- 
ly live on farms with the remainder 
living in cities, towns, suburbs and 
rural ureas. 

Linda Helgoland is Smiley 4-H 
Club's key leader; and Sharon 
Larson is ihc club's assistant leader. 
able for today's 4-H youth, Linda 
says.-'Ifs not just cows and cookin'" 
anymore." In fact, if a youth's area 

Lincoln, -she Was active in the 
school's concert choir, and she 
enjoys playing softball. Bryanna 
currently serves us Smiley 4-H 
Club's president and is the reporter 
for Leaders Council. 

Chelsey will be u freshman at 
Lincoln this fall and participates in 
choir, volleyball, basketball and 

ijnick._ Her. current .4-H projects 
include English angora rabbits.* 
horseless, youth leadership and 
clothing in holh the constructed and 
purchased garment categories. She 
is presently the Smiley club's 


Bryanna and Chelsey arc two of 
about 250 Pennington county 4-H 
members from 10 clubs who urc 
hustling to get their projects ready 
for this week's fair. 

On Monduy, Chelsey was almost 
done with her projects, but her sis- 
ter still hud a lot to do. and the 
girls* mom thinks that Bryannu's 
procrastination might have some- 
thing to do with thefact that Smiley 
club members have already won 
trips to the state fair, having won 
the Share the Fun competition ear- 
lier this year. 

In actuality, Bryunna might just 
be one of those who does her best 
work when she's under pressurcV 
Many of us cun remember the 
excitement of going down to the 
wire with projects as we prepared 
for the county fair, the relief when 
making the .entry deadline and the 
anticipation- of the judges' deci- 

Although they have evolved 
through "theycars. - worth while""and " 
interesting 4-H projects are aniain-

Membership criteria has 
changed also. Until they arc eligi- 
ble to become 4-H members at trie 
age of nine, children from kinder- 
garten age may participate in the 
Clovcrbud program. Membership 
is also now available to youth for 
one yeur aftec graduating from high 
■school; ' 

Like most 4-H clubs, the Smiley 
club meels. once a month. With 
about 20 members, the club meets 
at the Smiley hall during the worm 
months and intown during the win-— 

Bryanna and Chelsey Hclgcland 
have been attending 4-H meetings 
for as long as they can remember, 
accompanying their older sisters 
enough to be members incmsclves.. 

Bryannu's projects this year 
include Florida white rabbits, cots, 
home landscaping and youth lead-* 
crship. She graduated from Lincoln

Remember that the Thief River 
Falls public library has preschool 

— r; -". ^^rr^ — ;^;^;- , ri;.™-.l,ii-ni-in- 

' lot of time. So the question is: liiw" 
can we encourage children to pick 
up their toys'.' One way is to make 
sure that toy storage is convenient 
for them. - ' 

Rather than using one large loy 
box, where cvcryilnng'is alt mixed 
up and thrown together, use small 
containers so that similar things can 
be stored together. This method noi 
only teaches children about organi- 
zation, but actually makes the toys 
more inviting to play with. 
Inexpensive containers to use 
include ice cream pails, rubber dish- 
pans, coffee cans or sturdy card- 
board boxes. You could even glue a 
picture on each to show the child 
what goes inside. 

Other good storage includes bas- 
kets, lower dresser drawers and 
slurdy"shelves _ afthc"botmm~of-a- 
closet or bookcase. Choose storage 
places your.child can reach if you 
want them to use the places. 
Remember children will not 
become responsible and pick ,up 
their toys just because you have 
good storage. But good storage, 
Kelp and encouragement from par- 
ents will do a lot to promote respon- 

sible c h ildren. 


Help your child learn about sort- 
ing and position words as you pick 
up toys together. For example, say. 
"put the cars in the bucket." "put the 
blocks on the shelf." etc. v

Carrillo twins will bring twice the 
experience to Thunder on Hooves 

by Marvin Lundin 
. Times Editor 

Twin brothers Adam and Gilbert 
Carrillo arc" only 27 years old, but 
between the two of them have more- 
than 28 years of bull riding and 10 ' 
-years of -profcssional-buil riding— 
experience.' The Carrillos will be in 
Thief River Falls this week hoping 
for a big chunk of the 1 $25,000 in 
added money" for the Thunder on 
Hooves bull ride at the Pennington 
County Fair. 

Ills the money that is the attrac- 
tion, Adam Carrillo said in a tele- 
phone interview from his home in 
Stephenville, TX. He "was among 
the 18 bull riders who formed the 
Professional' Bull Riding Associa- 
tion (PBR) a few years ago and has 
helped guide it to be what he calls 
"the greatest corporation ever 
formed by cowboys. ' 

The PBR has attracted major 
sponsors and created major events 
which provide lots of cash which is 
up for grabs by the competitors. 
Former qualifiers for the National 
Finals Rodeo while corhpeu'ng in 
the Professional Rodeo Cowboys 
Association (PRCA), the Carrillos 
now concentrate their efforts in the 
PBR. ' 

'While Gilbert has enjoyed 

Greater success this season by riding 
7 of the 39 bulls he has attempted 
for 43.6 percent and total earnings 
of $79,363 as of June 29, Adam is 
having a good year as well — cspe- 
- dally "cbming-off a season^when a- 
broken arm and a case of Lyme dis- 
ease limited his performance — 

Adam, recently won back-to- , 
back' championships in Bud Light 
' Cup bulf rides at Tunica, 
Mississippi . and Louisville, 
Kentucky. He scored 94 1/2 points . 
in winning the latter event, being 
the first person this year to ride 
"JIT," a former NFR fighting bull 
owned by Harper and Kimberland 
Rodeo Company. 

"He is a good bull but 1'gol the" 

job done." Adam said matter of fact- 


The Carrillo brothers started rid- 
ing hulls when they were 13 years 
old and earned their professional 
cards in -1992. Through 1998 Adam 
.had PBR' earnings. olS92.93&_and_. 
Gilbert had earned $239,466 by rid- 
ing in PBR sanctioned events. The 
brothers are five feet, live inches 
tall and weigh 130 pounds. Both 
attended Odessa College in Texas. 

At the end of June. Gilbert 
Carrillo was in 'fifth place in the 
PBR Bud Light Cup standings with 
3.570 points. Adam was -in 25lh 
place with 1.931.5 points, but his 
wins in Mississippi and Kentucky 
will boost those standings. 

In the rare times when they -urc 
not riding bulls (they will each get 
on 100 to 150 hulls a year), the 
Carrillos buy and sell real estate and- 
dabble in other businesses. Adam is 
married and he and his wife Heidi 
have a' 15-moulh-old daughter 
Hadcn. Gilbert is single. 

Both of the brothers have quali- 
fied for the PBR finals five limes 
(1994-1998) and each has been a- 
Nalional Finals Rodeo qualifier 
twice— Adam in 1993 and 1995 and 
Gilbert in 1992 and 1 998. Both have - 
been Texas high school rodeo bull 
riding champions and Gilbcrtqwas 
the national high school champion 
in 1990. Adam won'lhc 1987 world 
AJRA hull riding championship and 
Gilbert was the reserve champion. 

In 1992 Gilben was ihc PRCA 
Resistol Rookie of the Year and in 
-i994-Adam~won the Brazilian. 
Invitational Bull Riding competi- 

"I rode in Thief River Falls the 
first year of the PBR bull .rides 
there, Adam said. "We're looking 
forward to coming back again, 
although 1 remember that first year 
the ground was like asphalt!" 
■ And when you come right down 
to it, the ground is one or the hard- 
est things about riding bulls. 

Confirmation service was held Sunday, June 20, at Abundant Life

Post 117 ends home season 

There was a lot of racket Monday 
as workers prepared the grounds for 
ibis week's Pennington County Fair. 
But the Thief River Falls American 
Legion baseball team made plenty 
of noise, too, wilh a first-game 
offense that produced a 12-2 five- 
inning win over Crookston al lrv - 
Wilson Field. 

Post 1 1 7 has been solid offensive- 
ly mosl of the summer. And' that 
trend continued in the first half of 
llic final home appearance of ihe 
1999 season when a six-run fifth " 
capped an 11-ht t atta ck that pro-^ 
"ducetl an early 10-run rulccnding. 

Crookston pitcher J.J. Schcving 
quieted ihe Thief River Falls offense 
in Game 2, leading to a 4-2 win for 
ihe visitors and a twinbill split. 

The winners didn't waste any 
time gelling started. As the earth 
movers reshaped the area behind lite 
diamond into a moto-cross course 
that will be pan. of the fair, Thief 
River Falls bals were banging out 

Game I first inning hits - like a 
lead-off single by Jeff Ris|ov and a 
two-run home run over the left field 
fence by Derek Berg, the next bat- 

Crookston got one run back in the 
top of the second on a one-out sin- 
gle to' left by Adam Hanson and a 
two-out RBI single to the same spot 
by Brian Abeld. 

But .a walk, an error on a pick-off 
play and an outfield error on a pop- 
up pluted the first of three Thief 
River Falls second inning runs. 
Rislov did even more damage wilh a 
"iwo-riin libmerun to righi-centcr for 
u 5-0 lead. 

A high fly ball by Andrew Solem 
hit the fence in right field for a one- 
out douhlc in ihe third inning. He 
moved up a base on base hit by Joey 
Pribula and scored on a btoop single 
inlo short left field by Josh Jensen. 

Thier River Falls pitcher Bretl 
Johnson, who just rejoined the team 
after a lengthy absence to "purtici- 

pale in summer hockey programs, 
gave up just the one run and Iwo bits 
over Ihe first four innings. The sec- 
ond Crookston ran was unearned in 
die fifth when an inning-opening 
error, stolen base and iwo-out single 
to left-center by Ryan Frcdricks 
made it 6-2. 

The Thief River .Falls offense, 
aided by- a pair of Crooksion errors . 
and a wild pitch, doubled the home 
team run total in ihe boltom of Ihe 
inning to end the game. A walk 
issued to Pribula was followed by a 
perfectly-executed bil-and-run thai 
-went for op RBI double by Jensen to - 
start it. Nick Wilcox walked and 
Johnson dropped a single into short 
left field that had an error tacked on 
to it for a run. Rislov then drove a 
single inlo left-center field for a pair 
of runs. A slolen base and a single 
by Berg made it 11-2. Berg look a 
couple of extra bases on an error oh

Boating Reminders. 

At least 80 percent of fatal boat- 
ing accident victims would have 
survived had those victims been 
wearing life jackets. So say Ihe stale 
conservation officers of the 
Minnesota Department -of Natural 

"It happens lime and time again," 
said DNR Conservation Officer 
Jason Jensen. 'We find the bout 
drifting empty on the lake, and 
among the fishing gear on the bot- 
tom of the boat is an unwom life 
■ jacket. The victim probably thought 
that since he was a good swimmer, 
he didn't need to wear the life jack- 

' and readily accessible. 

"Readily accessible means that 
they have lo be easy to reach in time 
of an emergency;" Jensen noted. "A' 
life vest that is zipped into a case or 
still in, the plastic wrapper, is not 
considered accessible in the eyes of 
the law." . ' 

And it's much smarter to be wear- 
ing a life jackcr rather than just 
shoving it under the boat scat. DNR 
officials say that putting on a life 
jacket when faced with' an imminent 
boat accident would be like trying 
- to put on o scalbell in the split sec- 
ond before n car crash. 

"Boating accidents happen wtlh- 

boating in good -out warning so you have to be wear-

petition for 
ag assistance 

Over lilt next several weeks. 
Sen. LeRoy Stumpf of Thief River 
Falls will circulate a petition 
detnundini; agricultural ami disaster 
assistance for struggling farmers. 

The petition will insist lliat 
Congress pass legislation to help 
farmers in northwest Minnesota 

' who have been hit by bad- weather 
this year, and by crop disease and* 

. poor commodity prices over the 

" past several years. 

"Farm families have been asking 
politely for u decent chip insurance 
system and oilier necessary help for 
long enough,*' Sen. Stumpf said. 
"It's time for farmers lo demand 
uction from the federal govern- 

The Minnesota Legislature this 
year provided $70 million in direct 

■ farm aidjiaymcnis and another 550 
million for permanent agricultural 
property lax cuts, but Stumpf does- ; 
n't believe that this is enough. 
"Wc at the State of Minnesota 

have done our pan," lie sunlT 
time for the federal government to 
act. This is a national problem, but 
wc in northwest Minnesota arc at 
the forefront. Only Congress can 
provide the assistance wc need." 

Sen. Stumpf said that he. has 
been at several public meetings, 
hearings and events in communities 
throughout northwest Minnesota 
this spring and summer, and that 
farmers arc beginning to lose hope. 
"The farmers I've talked to arc 
.saying. die same thing as the local 
bankers, accountants, seed dealers, 
implement dealers, store "owners* 

-much-more-of-this,— Uic-senator. 
said. "Wc have to start being more 
„ ssiv c.if w c want to g et any- 
thing accomplished." 

Stumpf said he plans lo have the 
petitions available at county fairs,

_. Errors Plague Sierra Club Timber Report 

The folluwi'mi article wriiion hy Marshall 
Helmherger I'irsr appeared in <»'' Timk-.-juy' 
M'»'.v/)(J/jit.v and. was reprinted in a recent issue 
of Timberline. a publication fur the ft'iesl indus- 
Irics oI'Minnesoia: 

Tile Sierra'Cllib has. a pmMein mi its hands . 
— line largely of ils own making. The jirmip 
made it nig splash lust week iviih ihe release of a- 
.report ' on timber harvesting in norlhern 
Minnesota. The report included maps derived 
from satellite images ami eommentary that sug- 
gested the region's forests were being severely 

overlia rvesled. j_j : _ _„ 

'But some of the harvest numbers in the 
report, especially lor county- managed lands, 
appear to be significantly inflated, in some eases 
by a factor of four, and affected counties aren't 
happy about it. Koochiching county board mem- 
bers have discussed the issue twice in the past 10 

^ay!rand^r^vT:igtiingT n ^ hl ^ ,r ^ l ' T,,rtio,, f i:|lc_ 
St.- Louis county board also discussed the issue ' 
"this week and instructed the land department l» 
develop an official response.' 

The Sierra Club has been slow to address the 
concerns, ostensibly because the consultant who 
developed the figures is currently on vacation* 
and no one else ay he organization appears terri- 
bly familiar •witirthe numbers. The problem 
appears to stein, from the fact thai the Sierra Club 
never requested harvest figures from the anilities 
but rather dcdiiied tliem by subtracting known 
state and federal numbers from total harvests. 

"Exactly where "the apparent miscalculations 

difficult to say until the Sierra Club 
provides more information— something which 
probably won't liappen until later this month. 

When 'asked why the organization didn't 
simply remiest the county harvest figures direct- 
ly, a club spokesperson said that as a volunteer 
organization, the club simply didn't have the 
resources to engage in such in-depth research.- 
That explanation simply won't wash. I requested 
the latest harvest figures from St. Louis county 
this week and had them sitting on my fax 
machine If) mimitcsJalcr. Most county land 
departments are perfectly ti p -to -diilc on th eir data 
eolleeiiimaiiil ciiii give precise"! igures on liarvesr 
levels with nolhing^more than a single phone call. 
There's no need for guesswork, 

Gelling the right numbers isn't a luxury, it's 
a necessity when a group is planning to make 
such~;f public campaign. Releasing numbers and 
•milking— serious — maicmcnis— based— o n 
remiires due diligence in determining their accu- 
racy. It's not oidy county land departments whose 
reputations are at stake— it's the Sierra Club's 
reputation that is now most in jeopardy. 

There appear to be other problems as well. 
The maps released as part of the report are some- 
what misleading. They may accurately reflect 
forest disturbances that have taken place in the 
past 1 5-20 years in the region, but not all of those 
disturbances are related to logging. Indeed, the 
1 992 Mother's Day fire south ofTower shows up 
miite clearly on the map as cuiover land. While 
it's irue that the- land was largely denuded.-fire is- 

a natural process, one that the Sierra Club advo- 
cates using as a means of forest disturbance. 

Of course, the area burned in that fire is now 
regenerating. Nearby land that was burned in a 
fire 24 years ago is now a young and thick jack- 
pine forest. All of which demonstrates tliat our 
forests do. in fact, regenerate, whether from fire 
or logging. Many of the areas identified in the 

■ Sierra Club's maps as cutover probably wouldn't 
be recognized as such by observers on the 
ground. Ten years later, in n»») cases, young 
forests are clearly re-established in most of these 

All of which is not to say that we rriay not 

— facc-problems-ulieadr-The-Sierra Glub-s-wuming- 
of the pending shortage of mature aspen is hard- 
ly' disputed by the DNR or the timber industry. 

-While the ONR^antjejpates filling that gap with 
birch, maple, stand thinnings and hybrid aspen, 
the inventory data is somewhat questionable on 
that score. No agency has the kind of detailed 
inventory data to say exactly how we'll make up 
or the gap in aspen supply, while at the same time 
meeling still greater demands for wood as addi- 
tional [plant! expansions go on line. 

Nor do we know how the anticipated changes 
in the source of the stale's. Umber. supply will . 
a'ffect loggers, especially in our area. The current 
focus of timber harvesting has been in the north- 
eastern counties, hut as the shortage of mature 
aspen begins to arrive, it is likely to shift to coun- 
ties on the edges of ihe state's forested zone, 
where harvests have noi reached the levels expe- 
rienced in our reg ion. A n d whi le h ybrid as pen 

planted in northwestern Minnesota may help 
mills fill the gap. it is unclear how they will help 
loggers in our area pay their bills. 

But while the Sierra Club raised its valid eco- 
nomic concerns in ihe report, its efforts to elimi- 
nate-logging in the region's national forests will 
only exacerbate economic disruptions in our 
region as Ihe supply of aspen is further restricted. 

The issue should not be logging versus no 
logging. It should be abouV maintaining sound 
forestry practices and sustainable levels of har- 
vest, while ensuring protection of the habitat for 
all our native wildlife. 

As Helmberger poinls out in his preceding 
-:miele,-the-shifun ; aspen-luirveJ(Cis.indeed.lQWiird. 
the edges of the forested zone of Minnesota. One 
can scarcely miss seeing the^iiuny trucks loaded 
with aspen logs making their way through Ihe 
Thief River Falls area in. the past year or so. For. 
ihe most part the logs on these trucks are over- 
mature, .(narked by rotten heaftwood. and unfit 
lo^any'"^!^^'^^ OIlICTtllinrchipboaTd"or file- 
wood. v 

Our hope would be that the areas from which 
these trees have been harvested will be allowed 
to regenerate into new aspen stands., although we 
know thai will not always be the case. Despite 
the adverse farm economy, there continue to be 
landowners who prefer to remove Irees and con- 
vert the land to agriculture. Thai is their right, of 
course, but il further alters ihe landscape in this 
area which, in just ihe last three or four decades, 
has lost much of its wooded nature.
